This Is What Kourtney Kardashian Eats In a Typical Day While Staying Keto

Say what you want about the Kardashian family, but there’s no denying one simple fact: they all have rockin’ bods. Part of this is genetics. But there’s also a fair amount of work that goes into maintaining enviable physiques even after having multiple children and getting older.

Kourtney Kardashian is no exception. She may be a 40-year-old mother of 3, but the oldest sister in the Kar-Jenner clan is the opposite of frumpy. In fact, these days she’s looking better than ever thanks to her dedication to diet and exercise.

What exactly is Kourtney doing to stay fit? She recently shared the secret to her flawless figure and even broke down exactly what she eats in a typical day.

Kourtney Kardashian swears by a keto diet

There’s more than one celebrity jumping on the keto diet bandwagon. This slightly controversial, incredibly restrictive way of eating basically eliminates carbs. Followers focus on consuming high-fat foods such as fish, red meat, avocados, oils, vegetables, and nuts while avoiding bread, beans, grains, pasta, potatoes, and most fruit. The idea behind the diet is to force the body into a state of ketosis where it burns fat for fuel rather than carbs.

Does it work? Kourtney says yes it does. “My body never looked better than when I did the keto diet two and half years ago, when I did it for two months,” she explained in a post on her website Poosh. “In my experience, I’ve found the best method to train my body to curb sugar cravings, burn fat, and kick-start weight loss is by sticking to a keto diet.”

Here’s a typical day of meals for Kourtney Kardashian

So without pasta and bread, what exactly is Kourtney eating? The KUWTK star broke it down for curious fans.

For Kourtney’s first meal of the day, she says she makes an avocado smoothie with a few drops of stevia for sweetness (sugar is also forbidden on keto, even natural sugars like honey and maple syrup which have too many carbs). Next for lunch she chooses a veggie-packed salad with added protein in the form of turkey or egg whites.

Dinner is usually something simple like chicken or salmon with a side of veggies. She chooses shredded veggies to trick her brain into thinking she’s having carbs.

When she’s not eating keto, she’s not eating at all

Intermittent fasting is popular in the keto community and Kourtney Kardashian is a fan of the practice. When she’s on keto, Kourtney skips snacks and curbs her appetite with some bone broth, green tea, or a handful of nuts.

Kourtney made it a habit to fast for 14 to 16 hours after dinner and also did a 24 hour fast one day per week the last time she did keto. During her fasting period, she used collagen powder to help her empty stomach feel full.

Is the keto diet safe?

The keto diet is very popular right now but long-term effects of extreme carb cutting are relatively unknown. Despite these risks, Kourtney is planning to do a keto diet again in anticipation of this summer.

“My body never looked better than when I did the keto diet two and half years ago, when I did it for two months,” Kourtney explained in her post. “In my experience, I’ve found the best method to train my body to curb sugar cravings, burn fat, and kick-start weight loss is by sticking to a keto diet.”

We wish Kourtney her best on her keto journey!
